Retaining, growing and attracting business is difficult at the best of times. But with funding cuts, not to mention increased competition, devolution and Brexit, the challenge has recently become even harder. Our aim is to offer you the kind of deep understanding of your local economy that will enable you to develop a sound strategy for creating growth in your area.
The key to developing a really sound strategy for growth lies in your ability to identify which sectors give your region the edge over other areas, which sectors you should be focusing on developing, and which sectors could be in danger. But how can you do this?
We have developed a methodology that groups industries into economic clusters and enables you to investigate them to identify your region's sector strengths, opportunities and threats. We are working with economic developers across the country to help them apply this concept to their growth strategy. To find out more, download a free report tailored to your region.
